The Writer sat through one of n modern
mnglclnns performances
somo nights ago and noticed once or twice
that his rlghUmnd neighbor took unusual
Interest In the cnterlnlnmeuL Not that
lie seemed particularly pleased for ho
more thau onco gavo vent to exclamations
Indicating anything but joy or astonish
ment As the audleUco tiled out at the
conclusion ot the cabluot seances the
writer mado Fomo common place remark
to the gentleman who had sat next to him
Ono word led to nnother and five minutes
later the two were seated together in
report near by
Tlie posters and announcements of this
great magician make one smllo ho said
during a pause In the refreshment
From them ono would think that he was
going to provo a mixture of tho
devil and Dr Kaustus vrhllo on the con
trary tho tricks ho performs were old
when I waa a boy ahd tho speaker
stroked his long beard angrily A fow of
them aro ot later date but they were
copied from Kuropcan magicians so
called They aro all very simple and easily
understood Tako lib lovltatlon Bet for
instance Tho posters represont him
sailing all over tho auditorium That
of course Is mero theatrical adver

the stage Tho theatre is darkened

I saw tho samo thing worked In Lon
don years ago Tho machines aro sold thero
for 175 by tho carload Tlicao figures may
be worked lu two ways Ono Is by forcing
or sucking tho nlr through them lu the
same manner1 Hint tho monkeys lu tobac
conists windows aro made to smoke Tho
other way Is by means of a key by which
tho swinging arm can bo moved as easily
as tho hands of a watch Tho thrco legs
of tho stool on which lsycho Is placed aro
hollow nnd aro fitted on tubes which pass
throuith tho state and are connected wltli
nn nlr pump Tllo nlr paiscs through tho
glass cylinder and operates tho flguro as
easily as tho nlr passes through your nos
trils and nnorntes vour tuntrs A silver-
plated wire cuu bo put through the glass
cylinder to operate tho head or iiatiu with
out bolng seen by tho audience nnd thus
causo Psycho to porforni his feats with
tho greatest caso
The feat of passing tho knight over the
choss boanl I will teach you In II vo min
utes or forfolt 100 Those cabinet tricks
linvo been seen and uxplnincd n thousand
times so that every schoolboy under
stands them Tho confederate who cuts
tho knot anil ties thoin again as soon as
the inuglclau tukes his sent lu tho cabinet
U concealed Jititl behind the front apart
ment of tho cabinet on a small platform
There Is n door In the center of the back
of tho cubluot which turn on n pivot ho
that he the confederate n enter ami go
out of the box m quickly as possible and
show his faco at the window ring the
bells beat thu tambourlno thrust his
hands out cut tho maglulan loose or lie

HEVKKAL JtODEItS MIltAULKS
You saw him do those alleged spiritual
istlo tricks with tho tables and chalrsr
That furniture Is mado of tho llghtot
poutllile kind ot wood Upon tho table
and chairs he has some Una wire places
into which he slips his lingers ami moves
the furniture where ho pleabes I have
seen tho same thing dono by means ot
lino nails driven Into tho wood Dy ex
tending his llugors against thnao ti muu
can gut purchase enough to lift tho ob
ject
You noticed the apparently miraculous
growth ot lowers In the poUf Go to-morrow
night and watch him closely It is
an old trick and when 1 was a boy 1 used
to nmuso our people with It Tho trlok
consists simply In changing the empty
cone rapidly nit the performer passes
toward tho pot How about the hot
colieof Ob my dear boy that Is dono by
dropping Into It u piece of unslaked llmo
that has been coucoalod lu tho palm of
tho hand And thoso drinks Thats as
easily explained as tho other In tho
bottom ot the tumblent ure essences ot
various kinds ot liquor The same liquor
genorally sweetened water or thin wine
la poured into the tumbler ana tho re
sult is something tasting like the liquor
asked for
Then you know the pqrfonner ha con
federates all over the liontto Somo ot tho
men who come upon tho stago during the
cabinet trick aro In his employ as Is also
the man in tho gallery who cries out that
Psycho Is wrong Ife has been placed
Ihoro for that purpose so that tho per
former can prove that lycho Is right If
I didnt want to bore you I could go
ttralght through his programme and
show up overy trick ho does Chicago
